President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly called a former interim National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Bisi Akande to condone with him on the death of his wife, Madam Omowunmi Bisi Akande.
The development is contained in a statement issued by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to Buhari, Mallam Garba Shehu issued on Thursday.
According to Shehu, the condolence message was contained in a letter personally signed by Buhari after an earlier telephone call to Akande on Wednesday.
Shehu stated that Buhari described as “irreparable” the loss by Chief Akande of his wife of 50 years.
“I received the very sad news of the death of your dearly beloved wife, Madam Omowunmi Akande this morning. I am following our phone call with this letter of condolence, which comes from my heart.
“To lose a wife, a dear wife after 50 years, a constant and loving companion through good and bad times, is a blow only a man of unshakeable faith can withstand. Please extend my personal condolences to the immediate and wider Akande family and to friends of the family for this irreparable loss.
“May Allah give you the strength and Iman to endure her passing away,” he said
